Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Pecan and Marshmallow Streusel

I love sweet potatoes. I love with all the sweet and sugary topping. I love them plain. I love them with some butta'. Yep, I love them. Did I already mention that? So this recipe is no exception. Fabulous!

6 sweet potatoes (you want shorter and fatter rather than long and skinny sweet potatoes)
2/3 cup butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup light brown sugar
2/3 cup flour
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup pecan pieces

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Wash the sweet potatoes, scrubbing them well to remove any dirt. With a fork, prick the sweet potatoes in a couple of sopts and place them on a sheet pan. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center goes in easily.

3. In a large bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, and flour together until it's crumbly-looking. Add the cinnamon, salt, pecans, and marshmallows; fold the streusel topping together to combine.

4. Slice the sweet potates lengthwise down the center and push the ends towards the middle so it opens up. Stuff the sweet potatoes generously with the streusel topping and return to oven. Bake for another 10 minutes, or until topping is bubbly and brown.
